Rifle Company Nisei vs 1st Fallschirmjaeger Div
Allies: 1 | WEBZE
Axis: 6 | WinnerDave
I got together for a game with Paul, in his awesome man cave. We rolled Counter Attack (which I haven't played in ages) Paul decided to place in reserves his 4 Sherman 76s and a Nisei platoon. From the get go I was moving forward, through a tree studded hill, whilst HMGs, Pak40s, Mortars, Nebs were trying to pin everything in sight. I also ran a Sniper for the first time and it did great ...

The Axis need to get back to a better place in order to counter attack. The advancing allies must be slowed down.

78th Infantry Division, 78th Infantry Division vs Hermann Goring Panzer Co.
Allies: 3 | BullyBeef, Kildare
Axis: 4 | zsavk
The British 78th Division has had its advance up Highway 7 near Cisterna temporarily stalled. Hopes of catching any retreating German forces were squashed when elements of the Hermann Goring Panzerkompanie sprung an ambush on their strung out column. Initial losses for the Brits are reported as heavy. It is believed that the Germans were able to catch them in a devastating hail of fire before...

1st Armoured vs HG Aufklarungshwadron
Allies: 3 | FatalXS
Axis: 4 | charwood
In this game, the 1st Armoured Division were trying to Breakthrough against the HG Aufklarungshwadron. The extra mobility of the M4A3 Shermans and the flank attack looked like it might be decisive. On turn 1, the US shooting was lacklustre. In reply, the Aufk used an array of smoke and sniped the US 1iC - 1st blood. This had consequences later in the game, when the lack of protected ammo meant tha...

A Co 1/7th Inf Reg 3ID vs 1.Panzergrenadierkompanie
Allies: 1 | GeneralNick
Axis: 6 | ColJohan
This battle was between 1.Panzergrenadierkompanie 9.Panzergrenaider Regiment 26.Panzerdivision vs A Co 1/7th Inf Reg 3ID. While Nick is a fairly new general his army slightly outnumbered me and he had a Preliminary Bombardment to boot. He had suggested doing a deliberate defense type of battle with lots of trenches and obstacles but I thought that would be hard on him so decided to tilt the odds i...
